Deepening Sense Movement Classes


Deepening Sense is a process of inquiry into the physical, visual, and narrative aspects of the mind and body. In class, we will look into the anatomy of the body, and direct breath to help better articulate expression and voice. Elements of yoga, principles of Butoh, choreographic tools, and intentional improvisation tactics will be woven through each unique class experience. Together, we will mine aspects of the human experience through movement, stillness, and meditation as a mode of reflection into deeper consciousness.

March 19 : Water {Our bodies are over 70% water. We will tap in, observe, filter out, and absorb what we want to resonate most within.}

April 16 : Tension {Sensing the spectrum of tension in our bodies, we will hold it tight, release it, and explore the intricacies within its evolution.}

May 21 : Ground {We will work with what is perceived as ground; sifting the particles that have formed the dirt beneath us and moving through the transformation from sand/dirt to mud to solid ground.}
